Summertime is time for barbecue chicken ! I like to parboil mine so that it does not get all dried out on the grill. And then I slather it with sauce 🙂
271 calories per serving
4 skinless split breasts (5 oz. each)
4 oz. barbecue sauce
Place chicken in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and then lower heat and simmer chicken for 30 minutes to partially cook them. Remove to a plate and then place on heated grill, slather with sauce, and cook another 15 minutes or until done. Flip and rebaste with sauce several times during the grilling process.
Sweet sauce, succulent pork – what a great slider this makes ! It’s easy to do the pork ahead of time and keep warm – so this is a great dish for entertaining.
362 calories per serving
1/2 c BBQ sauce (use your favorite)
2 T dark rum
2 T honey
1 lb. pork tenderloin, fat trimmed
8 slider buns
Heat grill. Mix sauce, rum and honey and bring to a boil down for a couple of minutes. Use half of the sauce to baste the pork while you grill it 20 minutes or until done. Let pork stand for 5-10 minutes and then slice thinly.
Place slices on buns and add some of the reserved sauce. Optionally add some caramelized onions for a super savory sandwich.
To caramelize onions, heat 1 T oil in a skillet and then cook onions 5 minutes on high heat. Reduce heat to medium low and continue cooking 20 minutes or until golden brown. You may need to add hot water a tablespoon at a time to keep them from drying out. When done, season with salt and pepper.
This reminds me of a good old Arby’s Roastbeef sandwich. This is a SUPER portion of meat combined with tangy BBQ sauce and it makes a great lunch ! Just meat and bread – that’s the way it should be sometimes !

8 slices thin deli sliced lean roast beef (Oscar Mayer pre-packaged meats are great)
2 T barbecue sauce
1 small club roll
Place meat in a small skillet with barbecue sauce and quickly heat. Place on roll and enjoy !
How nice to place some ingredients in a slow cooker/crock pot and come back 4 hours later to a perfectly cooked meal ! Serve with a small side of mashed potatoes for a great meal.
8 5-ounce boneless pork chops
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 c BBQ sauce
14.5 oz. can of diced tomatoes
10 oz. frozen vegetables
Sprinkle chops with salt and pepper. Spray a warm skillet with Pam and return to heat. Add chops and cook until brown on both sides. Pam a crock pot and place the chops in the crock. Mix the sauce, tomatoes and vegetables. Stir well and pour over the chops. Cook on high 4 hours.
The BBQ sauce is what really makes the dish – make sure to choose one of your favorites and to embellish it with extra garlic, lemon, vinegar….whatever makes it good to you !
